Getting ready for exhibiting at a trade show often feels overwhelming. There are so many items on your checklist, from travel arrangements to setting up your trade show exhibit, and many more. Not to mention, all this time pulling you away from your day-to-day job responsibilities.
Planning your trade show schedule, lining up logistical details like shipping your freight to and from the convention center, and lining up show site labor to install and dismantle your trade show booths may seem like a daunting task. But these details will be what makes or breaks your success at the show.
To help get you on track for exhibiting success, we put together a list of our top tips to guide you through the process.
Exhibitors have a lot on their plate—from travel arrangements to setting up appointments with customers at the show, and MUCH more!
Having to coordinate the shipping and storage for your booth exhibits doesn’t have to be an additional worry.
Sometimes it’s easier and cheaper to take your trade show exhibit on an airplane as you travel to your next show.
Let’s face it, having the extra peace of mind knowing that it won’t get lost in shipping or at a convention center may sound very attractive.
Under normal circumstances, I would always advise shipping your exhibit assets so you don’t have to lug around extra bags and boxes on top of your personal luggage.
Getting ready for an upcoming trade show is exciting, but it can also be nerve-racking and quickly turn into dread if proper preparations aren’t put in place!
Today I want to discuss getting the help you need to set up your trade show exhibits—also referred to as show labor or I & D which stands for Installation and Dismantle.
Making sure you have the manpower—and womanpower—to fully set everything up and be ready for the doors to open and the crowds to rush and is super important.
At most trade shows, you can typically order electricity for your booth in order to power your electronics, provide lighting, and run the internet.
But exhibitors who plan on having a backlit display, whether it be a backlit wall, backlit tower, or backlit counter, will need to make sure there is adequate power available to run everything.
Sometimes we get asked questions that occur often enough that it’s worth their own blog post. Today I want to answer questions about how to make holes in your trade show fabric graphics.
Holes or cuts in your fabric graphics can be necessary for a TV mount, arms for adding shelves, or holes for wires or cables for back-lit trade show exhibits.
Silicone Edge Graphics—often simply referred to as SEG—are found everywhere on the trade show floor. They’ve been widely adopted as the go-to portable and modular trade show display.
The ability to create back walls, towers, counters, and even back-lit displays, all while being portable and easy to set up, has made exhibitors’ lives much easier and saved them tons of money on shipping and drayage.
Trade shows are important events for business relationships and visibility in almost every industry. We even have a trade show for the trade show industry coming up soon: Exhibitor Live March 30th, 2020!
But how can you take measures to reduce the possibility of infection during these and other events?
